Greeley, Colo. — Pilgrim’s® is pleased to announce that Just BARE® chicken, its brand of premium, all natural chicken dedicated to providing good food for more people, has renewed its commitment to healthy lifestyles by continuing its long-standing sponsorships with two community partners: The Life Time Tri Minneapolis and Roots for the Home Team. Just BARE supports initiatives focused on healthy living, hunger relief, community enrichment and environmental protection.
The Life Time Tri Minneapolis is Minnesota’s premier annual summer triathlon. Now in its 17th year, the Minneapolis Tri is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 14 at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis. Thousands of elite, amateur and beginner athletes are expected to participate in this years’ swim, bike and run course. In addition to being the presenting sponsor, Just BARE is also the sponsor of the Just BARE Chicken Athlete Tracker, which allows friends, family and fans to track participating athletes’ progress throughout the course on race day. Just BARE has been a sponsor of the Life Time Tri Minneapolis since 2016.
Roots for the Home Team is a groundbreaking program that partners with urban youth garden programs across the Twin Cities. Roots participants roll up their sleeves and learn how to plant and nurture gardens, then use that produce to develop unique salad and soup recipes that are sold at Target Field during Minnesota Twins’ weekend home games. Roots helps youth boldly believe in their futures, gain valuable entrepreneurial skills, pride and a greater sense of self through this first-of-its-kind salad enterprise. Just BARE has been a sponsor of Roots for the Home Team since the program was created in 2012.
“Just BARE is proud to sponsor the Life Time Tri Minneapolis and Roots for the Home Team. We’re passionate about fueling an active, healthy way of life and the Life Time Tri Minneapolis is a natural fit for us. Equally important is youth education. Our partnership with Roots for the Home Team offers the opportunity to educate our youth about where their food comes from and opens their world up to entrepreneurial opportunities they may have otherwise never been exposed to,” said Laston Charriez, chief marketing officer of Pilgrim’s.
Just BARE’s commitment to people extends beyond the dinner table, and they look forward to continuing their partnerships and extending their commitment to Raising Goodness®. To learn more about Just BARE and find great recipes to fuel your healthy lifestyle, visit justbarechicken.com.
